Employment discrimination laws prohibit discrimination in hiring, firing, layoffs, promotions, or compensation on the basis of gender, age, race, religion, national origin or ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy or marital status. These laws also protect employees from harassment in the workplace — generally referred to as a “hostile work environment” — based on their membership in one of these protected classes.
